Box and Microsoft Azure Partner to Power Work in the Cloud

At Box, our mission is to power how the world works together. We now work with 74,000 organizations globally and the majority of the Fortune 500. Companies ranging from GE and Coca-Cola to Airbnb and Spotify use Box as their cloud content management platform to secure, share, collaborate, and access their information from anywhere. And one of the most important ways that we enable this is through interoperability with leading platforms.

Since our founding, Box's customers have relied on interoperability with Box and Microsoft solutions like Office, Windows, Outlook, and most recently the Office 365 suite with products like Office Online and Microsoft Teams. Today, we are thrilled to be extending our collaboration even further by announcing that Box and Microsoft will be jointly offering Box cloud content management using Azure services, and working together to deliver solutions that help customers drive digital transformation.

Our engineering teams are hard at work integrating Box with Azure, including exploring ways to integrate AI capabilities enabled by Microsoft's Intelligent Cloud and add Azure regions outside the U.S. to our Box Zones solution for in-region storage on Azure's trusted global footprint. From leveraging Azure's footprint of 40 data-centers world-wide to help customers keep their data stored in-region to taking advantage of Azure's AI technologies - like video recognition - we're also incredibly thrilled to be exploring other innovations for customers. We'll be working with Microsoft to jointly deliver these solutions, and more, to customers over the coming quarters.

As we continue on our journey to power how the world works together, Box will continue to be the most open and integrated cloud content management platform. Our job is to ensure that customers can take advantage of the best that the cloud has to offer, from a variety of platforms, and integrate into all of the apps our customers use. The days of closed IT architectures and data lock-in are over, and we couldn't be happier that we're moving to a new era of enterprise software.
